The true meaning (or a better meaning) of "righteous"

Who has the power to turn things around in a little world so seemingly large?  World leaders?  Politicians?  Celebrities?  The media?  Who. Two thousand years ago, give or take a couple hundred years, someone had the idea it was the every day people who could make the biggest difference, because that is who he brought his message to.  A message of love.  Love your neighbor. He gave his message to you and to me,...

Surviving a holiday

Thereofre, I hope you will all...

The past month has involved quite a bit of hard work preparing for our photography show; the show is opening on December 2nd at Marti's on Main in Albion, New York.  When we first decided to do a photography show this December, the idea seemed rather simple and easy to pull off.  Of course it could have stayed that way, but the more we worked on it, the bigger our plans became and the more work there was to be done.  No regrets about that at all, we are having a good time doing something productive and creative that the...
